Since nobody responded...
.. I'll bump this question too.

That said, I'm super tempted to try one out myself. Rumor has it, they are going to have a 29er FR in Spring 2013. All of my bikes are 29ers these days, and I don't really want to go back to 26ers. The only 29er Cargo Bike is the Kona Ute, as far as I know. If I'm wrong, somebody please chime in. I'm also thinking electric assist, since I'll be hauling around my two kids and would like to get over the Oakland hills here, and not be too much of an obstacle in traffic.
